Mouse Highway

I purchased a used Coachmen Prism M230 a couple of years ago. Since purchase I have been battling mice getting into the RV. I tried all the common practices such as electronic devices, bounce sheets, moth balls and poison. Mouse traps work but doesn't keep them out obviously. Today I was doing some routine maintenance on the slide mechanism. I took the motor cover off and a mouse and the mouse trap fell out.i wondered where that trap went...lol. Needless to say the mouse looked the worse for wear. The plastic cover is notched to allow the wiring access to the motor. The notch was more than big enough for mice to enter. Once past the cover it was easy access to the interior of the coach. I fashioned a piece of sheet metal to better cover the opening and added some steel wool. Hopefully I've solved my problem.

If it were me, I would replace the steel wool with a copper Chore Boy as they will not rust like steel wool or disintegrate into the mechanism.
